HC Deb 04 October 1944 vol 403 cc935-6
54. Mr. Burke

asked the Minister of Production if he has received the comments of his Department's representatives at Washington regarding the publication of the Report of the Textile Mission to the U.S.A.; and if he now proposes to make the Report available to the public or to Members of Parliament.

Mr. Lyttelton

The Report of the Mission is to be published by H.M. Stationery Office and will be available at an early date.

Mr. Burke

Can the Minister say whether there has been only one report and whether all of it will be available; and will he explain what "an early date" means?

Mr. Lyttelton

"An early date" is, I think, a matter of how long it takes to print. I think is will be available in the next fortnight, and so far as I know the whole report is being published. I am not quite certain.
